Very Difficult Interview
I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at FedEx.
Interview Details –
Initial screen over the phone with a manager from Finance department - standard questions about experience, personality and why I want to work for FedEx. Lasted one hour. Very shortly afterwards, I was contacted by an admin assistant and given two exercises in Excel to test my Excel skills, as well as my analytical and presentation skills. Exercises were very thorough and required some time to complete. Within one week after submission, I was contacted by the admin assistant to schedule a panel interview for three weeks ahead. On the day of the panel interview, I spent 5 hours there. The first two hours were with the panel. They came in with a package of 11 questions - mostly problem solving and critical thinking, some examples of situations. Very rigorous process.
It is now one month, two follow-up emails, and still no feedback from them.

Interview Question – Tell me about the most techhical aspect of Ms Excel that you master. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at FedEx in April 2012.
Interview Details – After applying online I was not contacted until a few months later because I think they were waiting to fill it until my predecessor was promoted. I was called by the directors admin to set up a time for phone interview. I was living out of state so we had to arrange mutually available time. The phone interview was pretty formal typical behavioral questions sprinkled with a couple technical questions. I was asked what the most complex excel model I'd ever built was, if I had ever done macros, etc. A week later I was called to schedule my flight for a face to face panel interview.
Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate because I was happy with my offer and excited for the opportunity. I don't think there is much wiggle room with salary negotiation, maybe a couple thousand annually.
